You know how, when Nordstrom has a sale, you never know about it? Because no one on social media EVER mentions it?
*rolls eyes so hard they fall out of her head.
*Picks them up and puts them back in again, because it is my mission and duty to make Nordstrom love me, buy one of every thing, give John a heart attack, I mean, INFORM you guys of important ways to wreck your credit score.
You know how you sometimes accidentally on purpose buy all these dresses, because you think your life is fancy. And then, you remember that YOU ARE NOT FANCY. And that you only buy dresses because they will probably make you look just like the model wearing them. (Spoiler alert: They won’t.)
Anyone else? I mean, it’s like my brain forgets for a second that 95% of the time, I’m reaching for sweats, OR sweats that masquerade as real pants. (Looking at you, joggers. And thank you for your service.)
Someone once told me, “blondes should never wear yellow.” After a SAY WHAT, followed by a HOW DARE YOU, it became my mission to find a flattering yellow for blondes. Specifically, blondes who aren’t actually blondes, and who also have the skin tone of a piece of notebook paper.
Anyway, I love yellow and all it’s iterations, but every time I reach for it, I hear that little voice reminding me that blondes can’t pull off yellow. (Coincidentally, it’s the same little voice that likes to remind me that I’m NOT a size 2 and that I’m NOT in my early 30’s.)
Sometimes you wanna Pinterest up an amazing, creative Halloween costume that impresses all of Instagram, I mean, YOUR SWEET CHILDREN, who, have apparently "always wanted a fun mom that dresses up for Halloween."
Good to know.
But then, other times you just wanna justify those new moto boots you bought. Or that camo jacket you’ve been eyeing. Or the red ringmaster coat that a certain someone said was too “extra,” but you just KNEW that one day there would be a highly popular movie about a musically gifted dreamer who opens his own circus. Or ya know. Something like that.
If you’ve been around for awhile, you know my love for ASOS runs deep. Not only are the prices really affordable (for the most part), ASOS is so on point, trend-wise. Add to all that a discount code for 15% off EVERYTHING (WOW15), and well…..your purchase is basically free. Ish.
*Finds out J.Crew Mercantile is available on Amazon.
*Races John to the credit cards before he can run them through his shredder.
*Laughs evilly at the look on John’s face when he realizes I’ve got those bad boys memorized.
It’s always been high-quality, but remember when J.Crew used to be a bit more, ahem, AFFORDABLE? And you know how now, when you browse the J.Crew website, the prices hurt your feelings? (Not to mention your bank account?)
Today our marriage is a fourteen year old. So we’re gonna talk about John y’all. And not ONLY to say something outlandish to see if actually reads the blog. Although that will be an added bonus. Muahahaha.
See, today, we’ve been married for FOURTEEN years. I know what you’re thinking, and the answer is YES. Yes, I WAS a child bride. I met John the very day I moved to Atlanta for my first job out of college. What followed was a quick breakup with my current boyfriend, because I knew SOMETHING about John was different. And even though I couldn’t remember his first name after our last meeting (I just referred to him as “the hot guy from that thing”), I knew I’d see him again, and I KNEW he was special.
I’m asked all the time about my favorite shoe brand. In fact, it’s probably one of the top questions I get, and don’t y’all know that’s like asking me to pick my favorite child?
(Just kidding, it’s not that hard. Basically, I consider which one is making me look the best, and causing the least amount of pain. Exactly the criteria for picking my favorite child. Har de har har, #sofunnytodaysherri)
Believe me, if anyone can get stuck in a “I only shop at these 3 places” rut, it’s ME. (Hi Nordstrom! Hi Anthropologie! Call me!)
Sometimes though, I like to look for style in places that AREN’T my go-tos. That interesting store in the little town on your road trip. The girls section in your favorite department store. (I mean, you WILL have to size up. Like, a LOT. And even then, you may or may not look like a stuffed sausage in that tween’s jacket you picked out. And by you, I mean ME.)
(You may also embarrass your daughter by wearing the same outfit she has on. #whoops #sorrynotsorry)
Rocking the “casual hair touch” since 2016. (Also this is a sweater on top of a dress, so basically I am a fashion magician, you are welcome.) 😂 And y’all? It’s apparently already #BlackFriday. (shhhh don’t tell the stores #Thanksgiving hasn’t happened yet. They don’t need to know that.) Seriously there are SO many great sales already happening, so I say, let’s give lots of thanks, while also scoring lots of deals. For which I give thanks. See how that works? Here’s how you can make the most of #blackfriday and #cyberweek. 1. Check RATMJ.com often for all of my favorite sales, sale picks, and just general ridiculousness. 2. Get over your LIKEtoKNOW.it aversion, and download the app already! (It’ll change the way you shop, no question.) 3. Like and screenshot all of your favorite #bloggers and #influencers, then... 4. go to your LTK app, where your entire wish list is in one convenient place. 5. Make sure to send that wishlist to your significant other obnoxiously often, which he WILL LOVE, BECAUSE CLEARLY YOU ARE TRYING TO BE HELPFUL AND COULD HE JUST STOP ROLLING HIS EYES LIKE THAT? | http://liketk.it/2yn1s #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKunder100 #LTKunder50 #LTKshoecrush #LTKstyletip #ltkholiday #fashionblogger #momblogger #atlblogger #lifestyleblogger

Dear Webster’s, can we please just make #jumperall a legit word? It’s fun to wear, fun to say, and obviously if you don’t, I’ll just head over to Urban Dictionary and make up a definition myself. Love, the diva who has the audacity to think she can just make up words. (She can though.) Anyway, y’all, this overall hybrid is the ONLY ONE John has ever actually liked. And that’s enough for me. P.S. This #jumperall is from @fabrikstyle, and I’m wearing a medium. I’m also linking to a few others I’ll think you’ll enjoy, because I’m nice that way. Head over to RATMJ.com to shop my insta or follow me in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app | http://liketk.it/2y2d9 #liketkit @liketoknow.it | 📸 : @jnellyphotography
This outfit’s totally in the running for my #halloweencostume; I’ll just be The Girl Who Wears ALL the Trends At the Same Time. Sweater dress? Check. Fanny pack? Yup. Slouch boots? Always. Teddy Bear coat? You know it. If anybody can think of a way for me to be more extra, then let me know in the comments. Always here for extra. Happy #Halloween, y’all! I hope your night is filled with Twix and Reese’s cups, and that no one tries to give you an Almond Joy. P.S. If you wanna see the cutest “Colossal Squid” ever, head over to my stories. Also, it’s probably actually an octopus. #itsfine #donttellme | http://liketk.it/2y0Z7 @liketoknow.it #liketkit | 📸 : @jnellyphotography
